Coffins, urns and shrouds
Only bio-degradable materials are
acceptable. We encourage minimal
use or total lack of metal and plastic fixings, toxic adhesives and varnishes (which often contain high levels of formaldehyde).
Coffins can be made from many materials; for example, willow, bamboo, cardboard, straw, papier mache or recycled paper. Urns are produced in ceramic, clay, corn starch, rock salt and cardboard, and beautiful shrouds may be obtained, made from felt, wool or jute which are often hand decorated by the family and friends of the deceased.
